Stamping Around The World — Oh So Eclectic Notepad



Hello, and good morning!  If you've been traveling along the Stamping Around The World Blog Hop, or, if this is your very first stop, I want to thank you so much for stopping to visit me Lori Mueller, Stampin' Dreams. If you like to skip and hop and happen to get off track, the full blog lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all of the amazing creations.


The next best thing to designing a greeting card for a special someone is to accompany it with a handmade 3D giftable item.  I used the Oh So Eclectic stamp set on the project I did for the May Tutorial bundle, so I wanted to share with you another project using the same stamp set.  The Call Me Clover Post-it Note holder measures 8-1/2" x 3-1/4" and is scored at 3", 3-3/8", 6-1/4" and 6-5/8".  The fun thing is that you can create three holders out of one sheet of cardstock.  All of the colors used on my project originated from the designer paper...gotta love the color coordination between the cardstock, inks and accessories...all under one catalog cover.  :)


I used a 3x3 post-it note pad to help me determine the size of the holder and where the score lines should be.  The extra flap was decorated to match the front cover, but if you do not like a tri-fold holder, then you would cut your cardstock down from 8-1/2".  Just be sure to leave 1/4" extra in length to ensure your post-it note pad is fully covered.


Because the pattern in the Happiness Blooms designer paper is so bold, I wanted to use the skeleton smaller flower image as the focal point.  I used the ink pads to carefully ink up the image, but you could easily use Stampin' Write markers, too.  It's hard to see in the picture, but the Calypso Coral cardstock strip was run through the Subtle Dynamic Embossing folder...I love texture.  The Calypso Coral 1/4" Ombre ribbon is so soft and adds a nice subtle touch to the whole ensemble.

The Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog retirement list and Occasions Catalog retirement list has been made public, of which, any products including one of the favorite designer series paper packs – Happiness Blooms.  This includes all cardstock packs, designer series paper, inks, ribbons and embellishments.  All items on the "Last Chance" list are while supplies last and will not be coming back to the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.

RETIRING PRODUCTS — This 3D giftable project includes the following soon-to-be retired products (to purchase these items while in stock, click on images posted in Supply List located at end of this post):

  • Oh So Eclectic stamp set
  • Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper
  • Calypso Coral 1/4" Ombre Ribbon

Would you like to create this 3D giftable project?  If you love designer paper and ribbon accessories (like me), I highly recommend that you stock up before the remaining supply is snapped up by other papercrafters.  You'll find the ingredients listed below, and I've set it up super easy for you to click on any of the images and add to your shopping cart in my online store.  I would be so very grateful to you and your support for shopping with me.  For more beautiful inspiration, you'll want to make sure you hop on over to the next Stamping Around The World members' blogs to see what amazing creations they have to share.  Thank you so much for stopping by....stop back again real soon.
